Magnum Inverter Mounted on Mini Magnum Panel MMP Enclosure
Hi I'm Amy from the altE Store. We're going to show you a overview of the Magnum offgrid invertercharger mounted on the Mini Magnum Panel breaker box. We've already done a tutorial on the Magnum MSPAE inverter series, you can check it out here. Using the Mini Magnum Panel not only gives you a simplified method to install your Magnum inverters in a code compliant manner, but Magnum increases their warranty on their inverter from 3 years to 5 years if you also buy their Panels! Its modular design makes for an easy installation.
One panel can be used for one or two inverters. If you are using only one inverter, you just need the Mini Magnum Panel. It has the inverter input and output breakers already installed. If you are adding a second inverter, like we have here, you would also get a second DC breaker to go between the battery bank and the inverter input, and additional AC breakers for the AC output, and the MPX extension box to provide a conduit for the cables from the second inverter. Alternatively, if you are installing multiple inverters to begin with, you can get the higher.
Capacity panels that are designed for 2, 3 or 4 inverters. It will have all of the inverter breakers installed. The hood provides some protection for the inverter, while still allowing airflow. If you are installing this on a combustible material, like a sheetrocked wall, you can also get the backplate to provide the code compliant noncombustible mounting surface. You see this setup here also has the Magnum Router which is required when stacking multiple inverters. The MagnumPanel has slots for your DC breakers for before and after your charge controllers.
RV Flat Tire Far From Home Les Schwab Tire Value Promise Works
Hey everybody. Brian here sitting Reno, Nevada at a Les Schwab Tire Center. So there's our RV back there. Coming into town last night we picked up a big bolt that was stuck into our tire. We were hooking up power last night and I noticed the tire was making a seeping sound like a pssssss. So I looked over and saw this giant bolt sticking into the tire and though oh no. My RV tire is gonna go flat. But luckily I got these tires from Les Schwab back home and knew they were under warrantee.
So I was able to find a Les Schwabb just a mile from where we were staying. They got me right in this morning and I they put on a brand new tire. Now we can get back on the road. So that's a lesson if you are going to buy new tires. Consider getting them from a local tire shop that has stores across, in our case, the Western United States. Wherever we're gonna go, they will have our tires in inventory and will be able to help you out. In our case,.
WIND GENERATOR HINDI 28MB.wmv
This is an extraordinary wind generator. you will require all types of odd materials for making it. first take a film can and make two through holes. then take two short straws and push them in these holes with a gap in the middle.then take thin insulated copper wire used in motor winding and wind almost 600 turns, criss cross. adhere with glue. take a paper cup and cut out slightly tapered blades from them. this cup has a natural curvature, so blades would be curved. after you cut the blades, slightly shape them by removing the.
Triangles and make seven equal blades. make a hole in the middle of the lid and apply glue on its surface. once it dries partially, stick all the seven blades and this would make the rotor. finally in the middle press fit a cycle spoke. now this completes the rotor assembly. take a piece of rubber, stand four sticks and stick a little CD piece in the middle. then cut the film can so as to make just a short pipe. take the film can and tie it tightly on the four sticks. you can also glue it in place. now take an LED.
And join its two ends to a wire. take a bicycle spoke and fix it in its nut. at the other end of the spoke put an old refill. now take the rotor assembly and insert the fan with the spoke in the two bearings with a little rubber piece in the middle. in the end take a piece of refill and stick it to the lower end of the spoke. so that the refill point of this whole rotor will rotate. now take two strong magnets and stick them back to.
Local Company Developing SolarPowered Trucks
A WEST WARWICK COMPANY IS HOPING TO CHANGE THE WAY WE LOOK AT SOLAR POWER. JMO THEY'RE WORKING TO BRING SOLAR POWERED TRUCKS TO THE HIGHWAYS OF AMERICA. METEOROLOGIST TJ DEL SANTO HAS TODAY'S GREEN TEAM REPORT FROM THE WEST BAY MOBILE NEWSROOM IN WEST WARWICK. THIS TRUCK IS POWERED BY SOLAR TECHNOLOGY, THE ONE OF A KIND SYSTEM IS TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPED RIGHT HERE IN RHODE ISLAND. THIS DEMONSTRATION TRUCK MAY BE THE GREENEST TRUCK ON THE ROAD. IT USES SOLAR PANELS ON THE ROOF OF THE TRAILER TO POWER NEARLY EVERYTHING IN.
THE TRUCK. I HAD A DESIRE TO MAKE AN IMPACT IN THE TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY BECAUSE OF THE AMOUNT OF FUEL THAT IS BEING USED IN TRUCKING. THESE SOLAR PANELS CREATE ENOUGH POWER SO THAT A TRACTOR TRAILER DOESN'T HAVE TO IDLE OVERNIGHT, SO A TRUCKER CAN REDUCE EMISSIONS AND SAVE FUEL WHILE REMAINING COMFORTABLE AND PRODUCTIVE. THE ENERGY IS STORED IN BATTERIES AND DISTRIBUTED OUT TO VARIOUS FUNCTIONS. IN CAB HVAC, COMMUNICATIONS, ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM. THE REALTIME MONITORING SHOWS HOW MUCH POWER IS BEING GENERATED AND BEING USED BY THINGS LIKE THE REAR.
GATES. THIS PATENT PENDING TECHNOLOGY WAS DEVELOPED BY ENOW, A RHODE ISLAND COMPANY, AND THE PANELS ARE MADE IN THE USA. THE PANELS ARE SIMILAR TO THOSE USED ON TOP OF BUILDINGS. WE'VE TAKEN SIMILAR TECHNOLOGY, BUT WE'VE ENCAPSULATED IN PLASTIC AND MADE IT VIABLE FOR TRANSPORTATION APPLICATIONS. THIS 53FOOT SEMI TRUCK USED FOR MOVING AND STORAGE BY THE ARPIN GROUP HAS BEEN TESTING THE TECHNOLOGY FOR 2 YEARS. WE WANTED TO BE THE GREENEST MOVING COMPANY IN THE WORLD. PETER ARPIN WANTED TO REDUCE HIS COMPANY'S CARBON FOOTPRINT AND STARTED BY REDUCING.
Magnum MERC 50 Basics
So this is the MERC 50 from Magnum. Got this hooked up to the MM 1212 and this remote can actually do a little more than my inverter can do. It's set up to work with almost every inverter that Magnum makes probably every inverter the Magnum makes. And just a couple interesting things when you first get started the main thing you're going to want to play with is the setup and so on the set up We hit the Setup button and we have search Watts so let's go ahead and hit select, that's in on this rotary knob here.
So I've got it set at 5 Watts and basically that means that the inverters not going to wake up from sleep mode unless it feels a pull of 5 Watts to kind of avoid the inverter just being on all the time. If we go back through, you can go and check out the low battery cut out. Hit that. Absorb charging, low battery cut out 11.8 Volts DC. I have that set up so that we can't go through and discharge the battery bank too deep that we end up damaging it. Learning.
How to use this kind of stuff is going to be really helpful. If you're not one to buy batteries every year here's where we can set the battery Amp hours and the battery type. This is going to determine what kind of battery we're looking at. These UPGs are an AGM type 2 but we can also see if we had a flooded. There's actually a setting for gel that just means that you're going to get a little bit lower amperage coming in. The gels can't really take as much current without.
Bubbling and getting all out of control here. So we've got that AGM type 2, and keep going, the VAC dropout, Power save, screen contrast, we missed the thing I wanted to see. Charge rate. Here we go. So we can jump in here and see the max charge rate is set at eighty percent. That means we're looking at like eighty percent of the Chargers capacity. Going in here, kick it up a little bit. Let's see what happens if we kick it to onehundred. Nothing. Fabulous. And that's pretty much it as far as like.
The setup. You can just get in and get going on the running light bulbs and doing that kind of stuff. Let's set ours at 80 here. One thing I have a couple issues with as far as troubleshooting goes. You can see we've got two different buttons here. Here's the on off for the charger, here's the on off for the inverter. See the inverters turn the on position, just turn that off. See we're in Absorb Charging 14.8 Volts 34 Amps these batteries have been needing to charge for a while.
Discount Fridge Refrigerators for RV Motor Homes
Today's super modern RV motor homes have all the luxury features you'd ever want. No coolers full of ice for you all your beer's in the fridge in your motor home. But take care of that refrigerator or your campfire bacon will soon go rancid. The fridge in RV motor homes uses heat, which starts a chemical reaction which actually cools the fridge through evaporation and condensation. The heat source could be propane or 120 volt AC electricity when using campground hookups. Some use a 12 volt DC heating element.
These are known as threeway refrigerators because you can use propane, electricity or DC power, although the latter will use battery power in no time if your engine is off. It's fine when you're driving and the battery is being charged by the alternator. It's important for optimal refrigeration in RV motor homes to keep the unit level, particularly in models older than 1986. Newer refrigerators only need to be reasonably level. Before using it for the first time, use a bubble level inside the fridge, on a shelf. You'll know your fridge is level if, when you open the door, it stays open instead of.
Slowly swinging shut or opening wider. To get the most from your RV refrigerator, precool it for several hours before putting food or beverages inside it. When you do fill it up, put in items that are already cold, from the store or from your fridge at home. Keep your fridge stocked with items that hold the cold for a long time, such as cans of pop, beer or bottles of water. They'll keep other items cold, especially if the fridge turns off in transit and needs time to recover. Discourage family members from standing in front of the fridge with the door open, wondering.
EASIEST Oil Change No Tools and No Mess Fumoto Drain Valve
Hey Guys. Brian here. Hey today I wanted to talk to you real quick and show you something before I start on my next project which is to install a FanTastic VentFan above my kitchen in the RV. But um, before I do that, I want to show you something I picked up recently and it's for changing my oil. I don't know about you, but I change my oil in the RV about every year sometimes twice. A lot of times before a big trip I'll put new oil in. But every year it's becoming kind.
Of a hassle to find someone to do it for an affordable price. A lot of these guys will charge an arm and a leg or you'll go back to the same place next year to find out they don't do RVs anymore. And the Ford dealer in my area doesn't have a big enough lift or garage to service large RVs. They just work on regular cars and trucks. So for those reasons I decided to start doing my own oil changes again. Which is why I got this little gadget. It will make it easy on.
Myself. I picked up this Fumoto drain valve. I don't know if you've seen these, but I've had this on my wishlist for years and I just recently decided to bit the bullet and get it. It wasn't expensive. It was like 16 to 20 bucks. I forgot. But eh, essentially it just screws right into where your drain plug goes on your oil pan. You just take out the old drain plug and replace it with this Fumoto Valve. Once it's in there, all you have to do is release the valve oil comes out you drain.
Your oil you close the valve. It doesn't require any tools to unscrew anything. Then all you have to do is basically swap out your oil filter and put new oil in. And your oil change is done. It really simplifies it quite a bit. So I'm really excited about it and I think it's gonna really make changing my oil in my rig really quick. I just get my oil 5w20 for my Ford E450 and the filter that goes with it at WalMart for less than 30 bucks. Then you can do an oil change. A lot of these places are starting.
To charge like 120 to 150 dollars for an oil change because it's an RV. It's just crazy. So if you're interested in checking out the Fumoto Valve. Go to the Fumoto website Link down below. You select the one that fits your engine. You can also get them on Amazon if you know the model and size that you need for your coach. Check it out. I'm gonna go change my oil a little later. I hope this helps. Talk you later. Bye. Hey thanks for watching our tutorial. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
